Today, one of Australia’s greatest country music acts, The McClymonts, return with the release of their new single ‘I Got This’, an anthemic slice of country-pop. The single is the first new music from the trio in over three years and shines a message of hope for all those dealing with life’s challenges. In a world full of mayhem and ever-growing pressure, music remains one of the few sources of assurance that we’re not in this on our own.
‘I Got This’ was co-written by Brooke, Sam & Mollie McClymont with Andy Mak (Vera Blue, Tina Arena), the award-winning producer and songwriter behind their 2017 album, ‘Endless’, which won ‘Album of the Year’ at the 2018 Golden Guitar Awards and gave them their fourth straight #1 ARIA Country Album chart debut.
“We have loved working with Andy to bring these new songs to life.” Brooke commented.
“Time has flown since our last album and we can’t wait to get these new songs out into the world and start touring.” said Sam.
“Our experiences in the last three years have given us so much to write about.” added Mollie. “Getting our sixth album ready has taken longer than we expected due to our own personal journeys with motherhood, and we are so grateful to still be here doing this together – we’ve got this!”
In addition, ‘I Got This’ single is supported by a very personal lyric video featuring in studio and tour footage as well as never seen before home footage of The McClymont sisters with their children.
Brooke, Sam & Mollie have been anything but idle since the release of “Endless” and it’s been a constant juggle staying at the forefront of the “always-on” music industry while being wives, mothers and hands-on business owners. Between them, they have welcomed five children in five years to the family; Mollie and her husband Aaron with Ned (4) and Elky (2), Sam and Ben have Wilder (2) and Ari (1) while Brooke and husband Adam Eckersley have the most recent addition to the family with Elroy, born mid-January 2020, joining Tiggy (7) and Harry (12).
“I’ve never quit when I’ve wanted to
You can’t when people rely on you
It’s not as easy as I once knew
And I got this, I got this, I swear I do.”
The McClymonts have enjoyed incredible success since the release of their debut EP in 2006 with over 250,000 album sales and 20 million track streams. They have achieved one Platinum and two Gold album sales accreditations and received thirteen Golden Guitar Awards, two ARIA Awards and an APRA Award all whilst becoming one of Australia’s favourite touring groups.
